The Power of Your Will: Verena’s Story

“I often joke that here on the farm we are one tent away from being a circus. As my Dad used to say, farm work is ‘character building’. I am proud of our family farm, and I love what we do. I’m also extremely proud of our decision to leave parts of our land for reforestation and rewilding. We now have a Monarch Butterfly “waystation”—it’s 2,000 square feet at the edge of our woodlot and I go there and count Monarchs. It’s delightful! When I’m in nature, I am reminded of how important it is for all of us, in our own way, whatever that means to you, to do what we can for nature. And I’ll do that today and forever. That’s why I’ve left a gift in my Will.”  

You have to Power to make a lasting difference for nature. And thanks to our new partnership with Willfora, experts in online Wills service, creating a legacy can be made easier than ever. Gifts in Wills are incredibly important for our work, making up a sizable amount of our income. A gift in your Will of even 1% after your loved ones have been looked after will bring new momentum to our cause and give hope for the future of Canada’s land, water, and wildlife.
